Boxer is the DOS game emulator that’s fit for Mac OS X. 10.4 or 10.5

What is Boxer?

Boxer plays MS-DOS games on your Mac. It’s based on the robust DOSBox emulator, with a lot of magic sprinkled on top.

Run DOS programs from Finder. Wrap your games into elegant packages that launch like a Mac app. Painlessly install games from CD—then bundle the CD with your game so you don't even need it in the drive.

Don’t struggle with mounts and emulation settings; don’t nurse a greedy games database; don’t bang your head against a DOS prompt; just play your games. Boxer takes away the fuss and leaves the fun.
Hit the ground running.

Boxer installs 4 ready-to-play DOS games to whet your appetite: Commander Keen 4 and demos of Epic Pinball, Ultima Underworld and X-COM: UFO Defense.


What’s new in 0.8?

    * More toys. Boxer 0.8 comes with 4 ready-to-play sample games, rounded out with a set of useful DOS utilities.
    * Drag-drop game installation. Drag CDs and game folders onto the new installer droplet to install and package them. Import a game’s CD so you can play the game without it. Increased DOS disk space lets those really big CD games install.
    * Smarter friendlier behaviour. Launch Boxer to browse your games folder now, instead of a DOS prompt. Sensible default locations in place of nagging questions. Game packages remember your CPU speed adjustments. Games on read-only drives are copied to ensure they can save their data.
    * Better Mac integration. Boxer now automatically supports non-US keyboards, scales the window better for large screens, and makes sure Spaces keyboard shortcuts don’t interfere with games. And if you have Growl, Boxer will show pretty notifications too.
    * More power-user features. Hold down Option as you launch a game package to choose a program inside it. Easily start IPX networks. [autoexec] blocks now let you run programs on auto-mounted drives.
    * ¿Habla Español? Boxer speaks Finnish, German, and now Spanish and Swedish too.
    * And a bunch of other clever things you probably won’t notice.
